About Terry and Sheila Northway

We have lived in Santa Fe for 40 years.

Terry and Sheila Northway purchased this house in 2003

Why Terry and Sheila Northway chose South Capitol

We bought the house as an investment property and it grew into a 5 year project as we crafted the house with granite mosaics, faux paint on the walls, honed flagstone floors, custom doors, cabinets, furniture and landscaped yard.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The weather was great, skiing was great, the accommodations were great. Our stay could have not been better. The Hobbit House is truly a well crafted, unique and very "cozy" environment to have spent time with our family. Thank you for a first class experience, and sharing your space with us. We are looking forward to a return in the future and hopefully the Santa Fe Hobbit House will be available.

Best to you both!

Lovely home, and owners

  • 5 of 5

We got nor'eastered out and arrived a day late. Sheila was kind enough to rebate me the day we missed. I can't say the same for VBRO.

The house is fantastic with beautiful baths, cabinetry, and floors. The kitchen had all the cookware one could ask for as well as glasses. The beds were nice and firm and the pillows soft.

I would certainly stay there again!

Fantastic artistry and fully appointed!

  • 5 of 5

This house was such a joy to occupy for a week. The artful design throughout the house made it a please just to walk around. Every door is custom, every room has beautiful art work, the tables and chairs are masterpieces, the tile work in the showers and the kitchen was amazing. There is just too much awesomeness to describe. The location was a fabulous base for exploring Santa Fe. Every possible thing you could need during your stay they had: every kitchen tool, the backyard grill, plenty of pots and pans, plenty of towels, plenty of pillows, plenty of everything, nothing was skimped on. The only two minor nit-picks I could come up with were: the floors are super-super slippery, becareful in socks! and the placement of the dishwasher in relation to the cabinets is nuts as it makes it so you can’t reach to put anything away. However, as I said those are very minor things. Overall, this was the nicest home I’ve ever rented on vrbo and we thoroughly enjoyed it!!

The Santa Fe Hobbit House

  • 5 of 5

The Hobbit House was like staying in an exotic museum. Shiela and Terry were exceptional hosts and went out of their way to ensure our family had wi-fi and everything we needed for an adventurous week.

We can’t wait to come back and stay again.

Beautiful and well appointed. We greatly enjoyed our stay!

  • 5 of 5

A unique and lovely home with all the amenities. Conveniently located with shopping and restaurants nearby and about a 20 minute walk from the Plaza. Our host was very responsive and helpful. One of the nicest places we’ve ever stayed! Definitely would come back.

Santa Fe Christmas

  • 5 of 5

We had a peaceful and wonderful Christmas at the Hobbit House. The home is amazing! We continued to discover artistic details throughout our stay. Such care has been taken to make this home just that--a home. Comfort and care are obvious at every turn. I certainly hope I get another chance to stay here.

The neighbhorhood is quiet and the location is superb. A ten minute drive gets you anywhere in town. The owners were helpful with planning and I cannot say enough superlatives about our experience. Perfect!!
